With young porcelain art currently being all the hype, it's become somewhat difficult to find your niche as a ceramic artist.

Basically, Shary Boyle owns the witchy. Harma Heikens owns the social taboo and Charles Krafft the political. Barnaby Barford owns white trash, Jessica Harrison seppuku and Kate MacDowell symbiosis.

So what about Claire Partington? Well, it seems her niche is "interchangeable-heads-and -extremely-wide-panniers".

Well, I, for one, am relieved I have finally classified all of that.

If you're in London, you can see Partington's work from the Voyage Extraordinaires series at James Freeman Gallery until tomorrow evening - she's exhibiting alongside Sam Branton.

I suggest you check it out if you're near Angel.

Details below.
